Responding Ethically and Competently to “Emotional Support Animal” (ESA) Letter Requests

Thursday, July 11, 2024 (1 – 2:30 pm ET)

Presenter:  Janet Hoy-Gerlach, LISW-S, LCSW, PhD  

CE Category:  1.5 Ethics contact hours

Increasing numbers of social work practitioners are asked by their clients to write “Emotional Support Animal (ESA) letters” to verify eligibility for ESAs as an accommodation in rental housing.  Uncertainty on how to respond to such requests creates barriers to housing access for people facing housing instability who are eligible for ESA support as a housing accommodation under the U.S. Fair Housing Act. The purpose of this webinar is to equip social work practitioners to ethically and competently respond to ESA letter requests through addressing the related basic skills, knowledge, and professional values entailed in such.

Objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to articulate the ethical and legal responsibilities related to verification of need for an ESA.
  • Attendees will be able to describe at least one of each type of therapeutic human benefits associated with non-human animal companionship: biological, psychological, social, and emotional.
  • Attendees will be able to identify and differentiate the different therapeutic roles commonly held by animals: pet/companion animal; Emotional Support Animal (ESA); and service animals.
  • Attendees will be able to describe and assess for eligibility for Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) under the U.S. Fair Housing Act (FHA), and describe how state-specific laws can further interface with FHA ESA eligibility
  • Attendees will be able to document reliable documentation of ESA eligibility via the “ESA letter”.

A Social Worker's Guide to Effectively Managing Intimate Partner Violence in Healthcare Settings

September 16, 2024 (1 – 2 pm ET)

Presenters:  Melissa Doiron-Min, DSW, LMFT and Liza Eshilian-Oates, MD 

CEs: 1 Social Work contact hour 

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a highly stigmatized societal epidemic, represented by 10 million incidents of violence in the U.S. annually. Though IPV transcends all racial and socioeconomic boundaries, women of color are disproportionately impacted and subject to severe physiological and psychological injuries, including death. Social workers and other healthcare professionals are uniquely positioned to aid in the detection and intervention of IPV-related cases, representing vital opportunities to engage victims and survivors in life-saving care. This webinar serves to enhance social workers' existing knowledge of IPV, aid social workers in detecting subtle, hidden signs of IPV, and engage in effective, targeted intervention strategies.

  • Expand social workers' current understanding of IPV to include subtle, hidden indicators of IPV.
  • Aid social workers in recognizing the unique challenge facing vulnerable and marginalized populations.
  • Enable social workers to effectively engage in culturally informed, evidence-based interventions that reduce risk of re-traumatization.

Social Workers Out-front on the Harms of Corporal Punishment

New date:  Wednesday, April 2, 2025 (1- 2:30 pm ET)

Presenter:  Viola Vaughan-Eden, PhD, MJ, LCSW

CEs: 1.5 Social work contact hours

This webinar addresses the myths and harms associated with corporal punishment, and the social norms that perpetuate them.  Physical discipline is the most prevalent risk factor for child abuse in the United States. Social workers recognizing it as a public health issue is important for the prevention of child maltreatment. They often dread conversations regarding spanking, but parents are often relieved to know they have alternatives.  Social workers educating parents and other adults about safe and effective ways of parenting is essential for the health and well-being of all children.  No Hit Zones as an alternative will be discussed.

  • Social workers will be able to distinguish the myths from the facts about spanking.
  • Social workers will be able to describe the latest research regarding the harms of corporal punishment.
  • Social workers will review trauma-informed resources for safe and effective parenting.
